Many regard the SX200 to be the finest scooter Innocenti produced, and possibly regarded as the best scooter ever made. The SX range retained most styling features of the TV 175/200 Series III which preceded it. The bodywork, however, was more angular and streamlined than that of the preceding Li models. Like the TV Series III, the headset housed a keyed ignition/light switch in the space where the standard Li had a simple kill switch. The SX200 had improved performance and gearing over the previous TV200 models. A quintessential Lambretta, SXs are extremely prized by collectors and the SX200 with its own uniquely styled panels and powerful motor is the absolute top of the scooter tree.
This mid production example was first registered in Great Britain on April 14th, 1967. Our vendor purchased it in 1973 and has owned it for exactly 50 years! 2 previous keepers are both noted on the original buff log book. In 2016 the scooter was treated to a full restoration which was done by Rob Miller at Simply Retro. We have included a picture taken pre restoration in the gallery. Notably the scooter was increased in power with an RT225 piston ported top end and 30mm Dellorto carburettor and large bore exhaust and improvements were made all around the scooter with the conversion to 12 volt electrics and an uprated Forsa shock absorber. There is also the useful addition of a mod charger which enables the use of a 12volt charger for a mobile phone for example which is located in the accessory leg-shield tool box. The scooter is an honest example with provenance, that has been regularly used and is showing again patina that amplifies this. The scooter was seen running well at the time of consignment.
